    Pros

    Smartest staff in the business. More resources for journalists than typical news orgs.

    Cons

    Opportunities for lateral movements are very limited and company does not live up to the their declaration of equity and diversity, particularly in the newsroom.

    Fantastic and Friendly Coworkers, Excellent WLB, Questionable Upper Management

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    - Really smart engineers and product people, with a lot of empathy. - Incredible Work Life Balance, really flexible schedule depending on the team - The core mission of the company (producing great, informative, important journalism) can be very motivating. Not everything we publish resonates this way, but the work that does feels good to be a part of. - For the most part, I've felt pretty shielded from office bureaucracy/politics in my day-to-day (though I am aware it exists in some parts of the company)

    Cons

    - Upper Management often comes off as very disconnected, disorganized, and even antagonistic at times. - They don't pay as much as many other tech companies of similar size, which makes retention difficult and hiring to replace people very slow. The company insisted it planned to address that discrepancy--even at some point sending emails about pay raises across the board--but it never happened. Instead, they offered slightly larger RSU grants than normal to senior engineers and above only (still below the rate of peer tech companies they claimed they were comparing their compensation to)

    Great company/not much room for growth

    Pros

    One of the best and oldest publications so just having the name on your resume is a plus. You can learn a lot and meet some really talented people here, but there isn’t much room for growth and it’s difficult to move up.

    Cons

    Not much room for growth.

    It had its moments

    Pros

    .Pretty good benefits, 401(K) & tuition reimbursement .Some personal development classes .Some hard workers, very conscientious who accomplish a lot & solve a lot of issues for their customers & for the company

    Cons

    .Very limited, if any training for new employees .Corporate purchases applications that don't work for the business, going over budget & deadlines, creating more work, having to hire more people & working I.T. day & night to implement .Management has their friends & favorites - the others get most of the work .Management bullies employees & allows bullying between employees .Employee surveys & exit interviews are a waste of time - if you point out problems with processes or peers, you become the problem. Focus groups analyzing the employee survey results are only looking for the "problem" employees, not to improve anything. .Annual performance reviews are a waste of time .Some employees feel discriminated against .No appreciation for loyal seasoned workers
